Visions, Strategies and Masterplans
Publica develops principle-led visions, strategies and briefs for regeneration and restoration projects, developments, and masterplans. We investigate and analyse the social, cultural and spatial needs of a place to report on how it could successfully grow and evolve. Our engaging, visually-led documents provide a roadmap for the future, and act as advocacy tools to help our clients build consensus around new projects.
Publica designs public spaces that celebrate civic dignity and enhance everyday life. Our context-led approach to urban design includes studying the history and character of a place, analysing its complex social, cultural and spatial characteristics and proposing bold, ambitious solutions for improved enjoyment, use and function. We work with multi-stakeholder groups and collaborate with expert consultants in highways engineering, transport planning, landscape design, architecture and heritage conservation to create beautiful civic space for all types of users.
Publica applies a consistent, research-led approach across all of our projects, at every scale. We conduct fieldwork and desk-based research that informs all of our work - on issues that include the successful integration of new development, civic amenity; social, cultural and physical infrastructure; building uses and frontages; streetscapes; air quality; housing renewal; culture and public art; transport and active travel; greenery; play; heritage and conservation; the creative economy; design quality and best practice in urban change.
